Halloween really was not a big thing in the U.K. when I was a kid, but then we left there when I was 2 years old, so what do I know? I think my first memory of going out trick-or-treating was when we moved to Cayman, and places like Merren’s department store and Comart carried your basic masks. Remember the ones? With just a thin piece of elastic that went around the back of the head?
If the idea of dining under the stars at a casual, yet sophisticated barefoot event appeals to you, then you need to get your tickets for the Feed Our Future Island Roast. Scheduled to be held on Saturday at the Camana Bay Beach, the annual Roast brings chefs and foodies together for a great cause.
The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman will be in the pink on Saturday as it hosts the annual Breast Cancer Gala Dinner. The sold-out event promises a fabulous night of entertainment with exciting live auction items and guest speakers Bill and Giuliana Rancic. Guiliana recently celebrated five years cancer-free, and her husband Bill will talk about what it means to be a partner of someone dealing with breast cancer.
Going out for dinner, or dinner and a movie, has always been a date night ritual. Cayman is blessed with so many amazing restaurants, that it has been dubbed the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean – which is why Restaurant Month is highly anticipated every year.
Tom Cruise is back on the big screen, perhaps trying to redeem himself after the uninspiring “Mummy” release earlier this year. So far, critic buzz is pretty positive about his performance in “American Made”; let’s see if the box office follows suit.
Wow. Things are getting very eclectic when it comes to concerts. Chris Isaak on one date and Twiztid on another? Neil Sedaka and Matisyahu? I’d like to find the person who would attend every single one of these; they would have very varied taste in music.
When we become adults, there are childish things we must put behind us … or are there? Who remembers slumber parties, also known as sleepovers, when a bunch of girlfriends would descend on one (un)lucky parent’s house and spend the night playing games and chatting into the wee hours?
If I were asked what film I’m most excited/terrified about this month, it would be “IT,” the remake of the Stephen King bestseller that was originally a two-part miniseries starring Tim Curry as Pennywise. The 1990 version really gave clowns a bad name, and it still stands up over time, apart from an ending that seemed to reveal its budget limitations.
Members of the Cayman CARIFESTA contingent onboard were relieved to make it to Barbados after hearing that some of the Jamaican representatives had flown out that same day, only to have their plane turn back because of the weather system.
There is something about the smell of Indian food that just stops you in your tracks, eager to find the source. You won’t have to walk far in Camana Bay, where its newest restaurant, Pani Indian Kitchen, resides.
